the project sponsor has made concessions, even though they want a large house for a large family of three generations, they've cut back at the front and they've cut back at the side. the downslope is what i think -- well first, while we're talking about the rear setback, if you look at the other properties on the block face, you'll see that where we're proposing to go back to this level is no deeper than this building, this building, and this building. in fact the only property that doesn't go as far back as we're proposing right here was the immediately adjacent building which we've done the shadow analysis to show lack of impact. i'd like to -- to respect your time, we have many supporters here for this project. i'm not going to have all of them come up and give comments but i would like them to stand, the supporters of the project so you can see the support that this has garnered. i want to conclude by saying we have done the historic resource evaluation that has been asked for. the project sponsor has completed the soundness report, complied with the planning code. we think it complet
is the availability of housing yes. in spite of all we're doing for every of every income especially low income families. i know smob about this topic i'll fought to get this under control from my long hair days. we cannot defy the cost of living in our town. we haven't built enough new housing. last year, we began to make some progress in november the 0 voters passed the housing trust fund for the next thirty years for affordable housing for first time home buyers and thank you to this gentleman for our first responders. today, there are more than 20 times the new housing built in 2011. that's just a beginning with 23 thousand new units? the next several years never have we seen this since 1906 when we had the great earthquake. housing in treasure island and? center market and downtown. we can't built our way to affordable. all of this will do little to help our poorest residents in need of subsidized housing. what we're doing now with our pickup system isn't working either. supervisor cowen knows this because she works on it everyday in her district. if we can't mend that structure we should

, in a partnership between mercy housing; now it's mercy housing because it's the sisters of mercy, but it's mercy housing because that is what it is. and that is what it means to the people who benefit from it. and this collaboration with st. anthony's. the coming together of two forces of such magnitude, of such commitment, of such deep commitment, of such values that you know that the outcome is going to be -- not only benefit the people who are here, but also be a model for others. this is a collaboration, as has been said between mercy housing and st. anthony's and was example was non-profits come together for the greater good. with their leadership and their being models, producing results of national significance, they, most of them have been able to to impact public policy and i know the mayor is right on the forefront of all of this. and thank you for your great leadership, mayor lee. [ applause ] and you know that we just had a little session with the cliffs, going over the cliff, not going over the cliff. but one of the things that we were determined to protect in that debate was the
distance. and also i'm very happy that this housing place will give people an opportunity in the mission to purchase it. also, it will bring jobs for the youth, the parents, and anyone who really needs a job. we need jobs in the mission, and i think this is a wonderful project. and i do live in the mission. i do want an education agency right on 24th street. i know that we will get great support from this project. thank you very much. >>> good afternoon. my name is richard segovia and i'm a resident of san francisco 59 years. i want to see this happen for the mission theater. i remember as a child my parents taking me there as a kid to see elvis presley, you know, franky avalon, and i had one opportunity -- i had the opportunity to be an usher there. i remember when i was a kid i got my first kiss at the new mission theater.

facing foreclosure, expanding home ownership counseling, expanding the the federal housing administration to play a larger role for those at risk of foreclosure. obama signed the home affordable refinance program in 2010. locally we've done many things. in january 2008, this board of supervisors established a san francisco fair lending working group, with its number one policy recommendation of whenever possible, home ownership should be preserved and foreclosure prevented. this promotes family stability in our neighborhoods and community. second of all, the goal of this legislation was to provide security for tenants in t.i.c. buildings. supervisor wiener as coauthor want to ensure that tenants in t.i.c. buildings which might take advantage of this legislation will be presented. we wanted to provide the greatest security possible for existing tenants to be secure in their units and our legislation has done exactly that. let me specifically address this to many of the people in the hallway that seem to be misinformed about this legislation. if you are a tenant in a building that elects to
: g.o.p. fury erupts over the senate fiscal cliff bill. will the house try to amend that bill? if so, what happens next? this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. happy new year. here in washington, the first day of 2013 is looking a lot like the last day of 2019. what started out with hope and optimism for a deal, devol ofed quickly to uncertainty about the way forward. i'm talking about the fiscal cliff bill. we look like at the fiscal cliff, the house republicans are meeting to chart a way forward. the senate passed legislation with overwhelming support this morning. the fiscal cliff legislation. when it made its way across the capitol to the republican controlled house, g.o.p. lawmakers immediately expressed concern about the lack of spending cuts. with the house majority leader publicly and bluntly stating he does not support the bill and the republicans are still at this time, as you look live behind the doors meeting at this hour, they are planning a vote series at some time. but we don't know when. it may include amending the senate bill and sen
of the house. we passed a bill, as you know, back in june, strong bipartisan effort, deficit reduction of $24 billion altogether, reforms that were needed, did away with government subsidies that did not make sense. we sent it to the house. we were very close on the full bill. to my sheer surprise and shock, the house never took it up. i have never seen that before in my life, where the speaker of the house would not think that the 16 million people that work in agriculture across america were not important enough to bring a five-year farm bill to the floor. that was the worst part of all of this. it creates the situation of trying to figure out how we go around the house that will not take up the bill. we did end up with an extension that was different than was agreed to by the four leaders. that was also done at the very last minute by senator mcconnell leading the way. he had voted against the farm bill, even though he agreed to bring it to the floor. he was clearly protecting the interests of those who want to keep the big government subsidies. the extension we wanted that would have exte
beat up. this is by 1925. a lot of cars, they get pushed back in the backyards of house of lots. so somebody might build a conventional house and just push their old car house in the backyard. this was on 48th avenue in the backyard. it's an old cable car house. guy who lived there in the early 1960's, he had a boyfriend named cliff. they paint it yellow. when he got a new boyfriend named dennis, they painted it red to get rid of cliff. but it was a beautiful little car. he still remembers it. it disappeared, we think, sometimes in the 1970's. but this is what keeps my hopes up. this actually isn't in carville. this is in the richmond district on ninth avenue. people say, are there any car houses left? are they all gone? have they disappeared? this is an example of how one can surprise you. this is on ninth avenue in the parking lot behind the old coliseum theater. before that park being lot was there the city was looking for houses, spaces, near merchant corridors to create these little parking lots. they bought this house from a mrs. suggs because they wanted to tear it down and p

visibility from the street. currently around the subject -- the majority -- or even the houses along the subject -- there are two story tall and the proposal is for a three-story building. therefore residential design guidelines calls for a setback of 15 feet from the main front building wall. second, reduce the width of the garage door from 12 feet to 10 feet and the reason is that -- is to prevent the replacement of dwelling to garage entrance from becoming a dominant facade feature. also, again, current houses -- surrounding houses on the subject about-face, they all have narrower garage doors such as 10 feet wide. at the last reduce the building mass of the third story either by setting it -- its rear wall back eight feet to be -- an advantage between the depth of the rear building walls of the two adjacent buildings, or by creating a 204 square feet notch on the third floor, measuring from the third floor northeast corner 17 feet around the north side wall and 12 feet along the east side wall. staff has a little -- to demonstrate this number three modification. this is what the

and it is a priority because mercy housing and st. anthony's makes people the priority. results. deeds, not just words. the words are important, but they are no substitute for making something happen from it. we all know the gospel of matthew and i was hungry, you gave me to eat and that is what st. anthony's has done. when you were homeless, you gave me shelter and that is mercy housing and they have come together. it's not just about food and housing, but it's about dignity and stability and respect. respect for that spark of divinity that exists in every person, respect for the possibilities as tyrone has pointed out to us and for giving back. god bless you, tyrone for not only turning your life around, but for giving back. [ applause ] so father, we have been together on many occasions, like this and father is the president of usf and he knows that this city of st. francis has been a city. when they talk about san francisco values, i take it in the most complimentary way. the values of st. francis and that is exactly what we are doing on this corner today, being channels of

[ applause ] >> thank you very much. thank you very much for your very generous introduction, barry and for your great leadership at the st. anthony foundation, for the invitation to be here today with such distinguished guests. how about tyrone? is he something? [ applause ] but it's an honor to be with you barry, with susan swift, with doug shu-maker and our distinguished mayor, mayor lee. last time i saw him he was on the platform while president obama was delivering the inaugural address. susan corette, thank you for decades of generousity and service to our community across the board. and father harden, who is president of the st. anthony's foundation. thank you for your leadership. when barry talked about my bringing my children and grandchildren to serve meals over the years at st. anthony's dining room and others mentioned father alfre
it's off to the house. the house has to sign off. they will get back to work this afternoon. what's in the deal? well, it starts with the new income tax threshold. those folks agreed to let the taxes go up but only on the family who is make over $450,000 in combined income. the itemized deductions will also be capped at $300,000 for families. and the estate tax, that was a big sticking point for lawmakers, and now the tax rate goes up to 40% for estates that are valued over $5 million. so if you're under $5 million, you skated there too. other key points are an extension of the long-term unemployment benefits. the renewal of tuition and child care tax credits and then something called the doc fix. it reimburses doctors who take medicare patients. and what about the automatic spending cuts that were supposed to go into effect today? doomsday, yikes. they put those off. but only for two months. that's the plan that the senate stayed up real, real late to accomplish. but it's time for the house to have its say. you didn't think it was over, did you? correspondent dana bash is on capi
. my name is olson lee. i'm the director of the mayor's office of housing. and this is a great day, isn't it? >> yes, it is. >> it's a great day. and one of the things about anything that we do in san francisco is that it does take a whole village, and we have a whole village here. and it's about a sense of partnership that we are able to celebrate. and i really want to emphasize celebration, because this is the first phase of the first phase of many projects like this in san francisco. (applause) >> and this is something that is an only in san francisco development where we're rebuilding distressed public housing for the current residents, and doing this in a way that is -- contributes to the neighborhoods. it contributes to the health and welfare of the existing families and invites new families and creates complete neighborhoods. and only in san francisco are we willing to take on this task to really change the lives of the current residents and preserve affordable housing for all future residents so that we in san francisco have a diverse community. so, we have a very short program

celebrate the new san francisco jazz center. the house of moment will break ground this year and in center market the arts and the theater are the great event there that were and there's a shop theater to other a v ts opening of the theatre. and we're we've proven that we have the unveiling of the apple product and there's other events like the fleet week or sports focused event like the craft of fight of the hungry bowl, the 2013 cup and, of course, the america's cup this summer. and with all of your help in may of this year we'll be making the case that san francisco is the best city in america to host the super bowl sunday in 2013. but friends you know what still mother - i'm concerned that some folks are still not involved in this great city. i'm proud that working with the trades units and we have consistently meet and exceeding our goals of placing people on projects. thank you commissioner. last summer we provided more than 5 thousand summer jobs for young people in partnership with the united people in the bay. we also were involved in other events that will place the youth of th
. the senate bipartisan bill faces a very uncertain future in the republican-led house. >> our speaker has said, when senate acts, we will have a vote in the house. that is what he said. that is what we he can be pekt. that is what the american people deserve. >> but is a sudden rift in the republican leadership putting it all in jeopardy? >> also, we're breaking down the deal on the table right now. we're going to show you how it impacts view your bottom line. >>> and what about the secretary of state? her dangerous blood clot. what could that mean for hillary clinton and her political future? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." right now we're following breaking news. all eyes are in the house of representatives where lawmakers are weighing the future of a bill that's now effectively a fiscal cliff fix. no vote has been scheduled on the bill that the senate passed in the middle of the night after steep tax cuts and spending cuts kicked in. speaker john boehner has been trying to overcome some seriously stiff republican opposition. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash
the renderings that i see of the proposed house are very tasteful and keeping with the rest of st. francis wood we could take a clue from some of the design guidelines in the future on our projects but in any case i am wondering if it's all right if we make it a couple feet lower or 3 feet lower as he asked and hip roof or flat portion. it would have to have a gaibl but it wouldn't come to a point. >> as i understand st. frarnis homeowner association they typically review projects before they come to the city. they have their own internal review process. we rarely get a project -- a dr project filed on a project in st. francis woods. it rarely happens because they do this. if changes are made to the approved plans i under the assumption that the project sponsor has to return to them. >>i am sure they could. looking at the project further west on portolla and i don't know if that is the term a hit roof and gabble and has a flat portion and i'm not sure if that can be done and i'm not sure of the amount of the gaibl on it and able to shave a couple of feet off and more into con
will be put in the record. without objection, pursuant to house resolution 3, the chair now i announces the speaker's appointment of the members to the following committee on the part of the house to join the committee on the part of the senate to notify the president of the united states that a quorum of each house has been assembled and that congress is ready to receive any communication that he may be pleased to make. the gentleman from virginia, mr. cantor, and the gentlewoman from california, ms. pelosi. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from washington rise? mrs. mcmorris rodgers: mr. speaker, by direction on the republican conference, i offer a privileged resolution and ask for its immediate consideration. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the resolution. the clerk: house resolution 6, resolved that following named members be and are hereby elected to the following standing committees of the house of representatives. committee on agriculture, mr. lucas, chairman. committee on appropriations, mr. rogers of kentucky, chairman. committee on armed services -- mrs. mc
of housing in the whole city. but the worst part of it is t probably doesn't address that income group from the 90 to the 120, or 130th percentile. so those are some arguments i would make for rethinking the percentages that you put on there. >> if i could just in really quick on that? >> go ahead. >> one thing to keep in mind is the on-site and off-site are options that can be chosen by the developer. so there is no requirement that the developer choose an off-site option unless it becomes economically prohibitive, the off-site is an option that is offered to the developer. and i do think it provides some of the an incentive to choose an on-site option, because the ami levels would be higher for the on-site option and thus as you point out the difference between the sales price and the cost of production would be less. so the developer contribution would be minimized. that is consistent with a future policy under the housing trust fund, which will further provide incentive for developers to provide their units on-site by reducing the on-site inclusionary requirements. i want to point
from the white house that this is going to pass but we don't know right now because a lot of this has to do with obviously leader there's in congress selling this to their folks and we're waiting to see how that all shakes out. >> okay. keep on it for us, brianna. thank you. hard at work keeping an eye on things. quick reminder, the house democratic caucus meeting scheduled for 15 minutes from now and the conference scheduled for an hour from now. suzanne malveaux continues with newsroom. >>> happy new year. welcome back to "cnn newsroom." i'm suzanne malveaux. we have a lot going on. a deal on the table but not out of the woods yet. all eyes on capitol hill, as the republican controlled -- the house, rather, convening this hour for the fiscal cliff negotiations. now vice president joe biden, he is heading to the hill for talks with the house democrats. this is a critical moment for the country. talking about 12 hours after the deadline for the government action has passed. the senate okayed a deal wee hours of the morning, prevent middle class income taxes from going up but raise rat
this with house gop setting a 1:00 p.m. conference meeting. we are learning that house gop rank-and-file will gather for a conference meeting. boy, would you like to the inside of that conference meeting. guest: indeed, but my hunch is it will not be a raucous affair. i would assume speaker boehner would have a hands-off approach, and say, "guys, i did my best, this came down the pike, we try to come up with the deal, and not get it done." his own caucus would not support it. we should have realized that was the danger. at the time, speaker boehner said to the president and harry reid, the senate needs to send something our way, and we will deal with it. i thought it was a humble and honest approach. now, they got it, and i do not think they're going to like it. host: again, the house comes into session around noon eastern time. keep your television on c-span as we continue our coverage of the so-called fiscal cliff. tactically, we went over the -- technically, we went over the cliff, but all reports are if this deal is approved by the house, they could retroactively fixed the t
many things, the housing e trust fund which will ensure the work we start here today will continue into the future. mayor lee. (applause) >> thank you. thank you, olson. and thank you for your leadership and work on this as well. everybody, thank you for coming out today. i know it's cold, but it feels really, really warm. and as carlos and miguel just showed me -- ask these are of course the two youngest of the five kids that alice gutierrez has. thank you very much. [cheering and applauding] >> alice, you and the family know better than i do that the bunkers that were built in the '50s that represented hunters view for many, many years were actually built for the military housing back in those years. they weren't really meant for long-term dignified respectful housing that this community deserves. and, so, you are part of the first of 25 families that are in this initial phase of a whole 107 units that will be completed in may. and thanks to all of our partners as olson continues to repay. i just want to emphasize this is the first phase. supervisor malia cohen and i are going to
to provide housing for all income levels and in particular county or cities. but it does not necessarily have to be inclusionary housing. i mean, you can use other methods of doing it. from what i understand, and maybe you could comment on other jurisdictions within the bay area? what do they do? if they use inclusionary, what sort of percentages of ami are they using for their rental and housing or ownership units? are they similar to ours? are they lower percentages? well, there is an ami level and there is also the 15% on-site and 20% offsite? >> i'm afraid i can't comment on that. i am not familiar with inclusionary programs in other jurisdictions. >> that is a problem for me, because when i am asked to vote on this, i have to know what other places are doing and i think you are doing a good job, but i don't think i can support it at that point, because i really don't have all the information. if it comes up in the future, i would like to hear about it. >> i also want to thank you on your presentation and wanted to ask mr. chue, the data that you gave us today kind of illuminated the
